Our Overnighter

Tuesday night we went down to the Edgefield in Troutdale, Oregon to spend the night for Kendall's sister birthday.  WHAT A GREAT PROPERTY!!  The Edgefield is own by McMenamins and features many pubs (I think there are 9) and restaurants.  As well as a wonderful spa, which includes the most amazing soaking pool.  It was wonderful at 8:00 am, such a great way to start the day. 

The rooms are European-style, which if you don't know, means they have no bathrooms and you share a lounge down the hall.  To be honest I was kind of scared of this, but actually, it was great.  You walked into the "Ladies Lounge" and there was a sitting area that boasted a couch and chair, then there were 3 separate bathrooms with showers, etc.  Within the rooms, all differently adorned with paintings of whimsical tales.  Our room, The Bankers Room had quotes from Mike McMenamin and Monopoly images. 

Upon venturing out onto the property, there were many little pubs in such cute and quaint places and also they have a full winery.  Growing their own grapes in the vineyard that sits below the property, and serving organic fruits and vegetables, as well as herbs, also grown on the grounds makes this property fairly self sufficient and green. 

There is much, much more to this property...but you have to take a look for yourself!
